TV will never be a serious competitor for radio because people must sit and keep their eyes glued on a screen; the average American family hasn’t time for it. ~Author Unknown, from New York Times, 1939
My television is the busiest electronic item in my house. It pretty much comes on when I walk in the door and turns off when I go to bed. It provides background noise while I do everything except read. I live alone, so I have sole control of the remote and the content of the shows I watch.
Yesterday I thought my television broke- I tried a few things and couldn’t get it to work. It made me very sad- my parents gave me that television as birthday gift right after I came home from college and it has been great for those 9 years. So I went to the thrift store and bought a tiny television to use for the time being. But when I plugged in the tiny television I got the same error. It was the DVR! Switched out a few cords, rebooted some stuff and my television is good as new!
However it got me thinking that one day either that television or the little one in my bedroom is going to break. And I would like to upgrade to a flatscreen that would take up less room and show off the High Definition that the wonderful network people have tried so hard to bring into my living room. But I don’t want to go broke doing it.
So I am going to try to get my new television at no cost to me. No, I don’t expect someone to give it to me- I want to see if I can earn the money to pay for it on-line (through taking surveys) and through rebates. And since I am not in a hurry to replace my current television (to which I have a sentimental attachment) I can take my time.
So I am inviting you on my television aquiring journey. Every month I will post how I am doing money wise and let you know the sources of my income/gift cards in case you want to take advantage! We will see together how long it takes!
Here are my favorite articles for the week:
Stop Feeling Sorry for me, I’m Frugal Not Broke by Frugal Dad
Santa’s Cutting Back from Frugal in Virginia
minimalizing my electric bill / annoying my wife. Absolutely hilarious and eye opening!
Starting tonight at 11:30 EST through their facebook page, Herbal Essences will be giving away 18,750 free bottles of Herbal Essences for the next 5 days. That’s a total of 75,000 free bottles of shampoo!

Also, if you aren’t a friend of A Frugal Chick on facebook, please click on the link on the right hand side and join me! Every time there is a new post I will send out a status update so you can check it out if you like!
I have seen information on Upromise for a long time on blogs but have never gotten around to checking it out until yesterday. After looking over their website and seeing testimonials on-line, I think this has got to be the easiest way to save some money for future education, whether it be for you or someone else. Also, if you have a current Sallie Mae loan from past education, the money saved can be used to help pay down that balance.
There are two ways to earn money on Upromise once you register.
1- Register your frequent user cards. Most people have a frequent user card for their grocery store and drug store. There are thousands of products that will give you a percentage back if you purchase them using the registered card (all you have to do is use your card for great sales the same way you do now). Once the card is registered it automatically checks for that item. As long as your frequent user card is current this money will always be saved.
2- Upromise e-coupons. Every month upromise loads coupons onto their web site. You then log into your account and select the coupons you would like to load onto your card. Let’s say you get the $1.50 off Huggies coupon. When you go to the store and buy Huggies, $1.50 goes into your Upromise account, even if you are already using coupons in the store.

I could write about all of this for a while, but I challenge you to take a few minutes and log onto their website and look around. If you are trying to save for an education imagine what could happen if a whole family came together and registered their cards to help send someone to school!
Here are the links to the grocery deals for the week!
Happy Hunting for Great Deals!
This week I received coupons in the mail from Bolthouse so I will be forwarding them to Tamra in Florida because she was the one who asked me to e-mail them. So if you like Bolthouse you may want to drop them a line!
I was having some difficulties with my web host last night so I wasn’t able to get the grocery deals up for this morning. As soon as I can get them together I will post them!
Visit the L’Oreal Paris web site to get free samples of L’Oreal RevitaLift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair and L’Oreal EverPure. To get to the samples, click on “Special Offers & Savings” on the bottom left-hand corner. You should receive it in 8-10 weeks (just long enough to forget so it’s a surprise!).
You’ll also find several great printable coupons, including $2/1 any L’Oreal hair color product, $2/1 L’Oreal cleanser and $3/1 L’Oreal Collagen Moisture Filler Day SPF 15 or Day/Night Cream. These products are frequently on sale, so you might be able to get some great deals!
